I'm considering buying a '07 S and would like input on the following:
- The name of a reputable mechanic in SoCal to conduct a pre-purchase eval,
- Any comments on likes or dislikes re this particular year/model, and
- Recommended upgrades.

I just bought my '07 Cayman S in February, so I don't have experience with any mechanic other than my dealer, but I did a lot of research on my car before purchasing. 2007 was the second year of production for the Cayman S, introduced in 2006. It was the first year of the "base" Cayman, smaller engine, 5 spd vs. 6 spd, less horsepower. If you've driven both the base and S versions, you can definitely tell the difference. I bought my car from a Porsche dealer and it had the Certified Pre-Owned warranty. That adds 2 years and 50K miles to the basic new car warranty. It's almost the same as the new car warranty, bumper-to-bumper. It's recognized as one of the best CPO warranties in the auto industry. I paid $35000 for mine and it had 19000 miles. I got an excellent deal and you may not find one like mine, but you should price shop around the internet and work on getting your preferred price. It's still a buyer's market. There are other Porsche forums on the internet that get more viewer traffic than here. I'd wait to do any upgrades until you lived with the car a while. You may think it's perfect. Performance wise, it is for me.
